Advice to me

Sunday, April 15, 2012      3 comments

I am the queen of unsolicited advice. Even if you didn't ask for my opinion, I will certainly share it. I once told a friend that I was thinking about giving up gossip and unsolicited advice as a New Year's resolution, to which she responde... Read more

Straw vs. Back of Camel

Monday, March 26, 2012      0 comments

Ugh. I am SO not where I want to be. On the plus side, I am pleased that my weight is a mere 2 lbs above where it was when I last tracked it on the site. But.. I had hoped to be so much farther along. Sure, I have excuses: my bo... Read more

Are you interested, or committed?

Tuesday, September 13, 2011      7 comments

It's been a crazy (in a good way) month with a number of social obligations, and while I haven't been as diligent as I would like, I have managed to keep my weight stable. However, I have reached the danger point: after two months, this is... Read more

Seeing the future - in my closet

Sunday, September 04, 2011      1 comments

Yesterday morning, while standing in the upstairs bathroom, I made a big decision: This was the day I would tackle my upstairs closet. Not that the closet is particularly big (thank you, older home!) nor is it my only closet, either. ... Read more

Newton's First Law, and why it applies to exercise

Sunday, August 21, 2011      1 comments

First, a brief nerdy part. For those of you who tried to avoid physics class, it reads like this: "Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it. " A more s... Read more

The Great Lie

Saturday, August 13, 2011      3 comments

After reading a few great SP blogs this week with great success stories, I was particularly struck by the comment made more than once how one really has to WANT the results to happen and the importance of persistence in achieving goals. I'... Read more

Conversation with the inner child

Tuesday, August 09, 2011      2 comments

This week, I'm a little cranky and not-so-with it. Hubby is tired and burned out, I'm tired and burned out, and watching the hype over this week's market decline (directly related to my job, but should probably put oneself on a limited media die... Read more

Progress report: 14% to goal!

Saturday, August 06, 2011      0 comments

Originally, I was only going to write progress reports at "round" numbers - 10%, etc - but I realized that I'm actually learning new things and will probably forget them by the time I get to my next milestone. Here's what's working: -... Read more

Cue Gloria Gaynor

Tuesday, July 26, 2011      1 comments

(For those of you too young for this cultural reference - she sang "I Will Survive") So, the very thing I didn't want to happen, did. When I complained Saturday about agreeing to do something I should have said "no" to, I ended up getting ... Read more

Winning ugly...but still winning

Saturday, July 23, 2011      1 comments

Today is Saturday and for some reason, I'm not feeling the love about my diet. It's not that I'm having any kind of crisis that could drive me to the dessert aisle, but I'm a little crabby about not saying no to my friends and committing t... Read more

"The game" - or how human behavior can be applied to dieting

Wednesday, July 20, 2011      2 comments

The rules: 1) Choose five behaviors that you want to achieve, every day. 2) Award one point per behavior. 3) Assign a financial value to each behavior. Together, the five behaviors should equal an amount that you could spend in o... Read more

Progress report: 10% to goal!

Wednesday, July 20, 2011      2 comments

Rather than say that I've just lost 6 pounds, I am reframing it: I've officially reached 10% of my overall goal! Since it's possible that at some time I will begin to wander by the wayside (this ain't my first diet rodeo, folks), I have dec... Read more

Proximity Matters

Thursday, April 07, 2011      1 comments

There are a lot of things I haven't yet figured out about dieting, but I have finally mastered one principal: Proximity Matters. Just as I don't go out on dates with men other than my husband (not a commentary on my marriage - which is... Read more

the advantage of advance hindsight

Wednesday, August 11, 2010      1 comments

While on the stationery bicycle over lunch hour, I found myself thinking about a recent story I read in the paper. A man spent over two years walking the length of the Amazon river to raise awareness for environmental issues. When asked about th... Read more

Status Report - Day 30

Monday, August 02, 2010      0 comments

Who knew I'd still be here? I have the attention span of a house fly (that's a 15-day life expectancy, so it's hard for them to make plans for the following month) so I was pretty certain I was going to grow bored with the whole thing. Yay, Spar... Read more
